No Dead White Men

Lucy Furlong is an MFA student writing poetry. She blogs about everything from running for trees to poetry in motion at www.lucyfurleaps.com. Today, she blogs about taking her writing out into the world, how poetry is political and her poetic fight for a cause from England to Russia.

Life has grown more mysterious and remarkable ever since.
